Const. David Wynn has been awarded a Medal of Bravery posthumously for confronting an armed man at a St. Albert casino in 2015. The RCMP officer was shot and killed during the altercation by Shawn Rehn, a career criminal who was out on bail at the time. We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

The proposed legislation known as Wynn’s Law was defeated in the House of Commons in 2017. She also pushed to make it necessary for a prosecutor to be in attendance for all bail hearings. Rehn’s hearing was attended by an Edmonton police officer whose job at the time was to represent the Crown.

Julie Payette. “It’s been a long, five and a half years, a very long, five and a half years. I’ve worked very hard to try to make the changes that I have made and I think that this is this will be a huge honour in Dave’s name,” said MacInnis-Wynn. A news release from Payette’s office notes that the bravery medal is awarded to “symbolically express the nation’s gratitude to those people who defy the instinct for self-preservation and risk their lives to save or protect others.” Advertisement Article content continued MacInnis-Wynn said the honour will help bring her family a little bit more closure on all that has happened. Also on the list of honourees Wednesday was Glori Meldrum, the creator of Little Warriors and the Be Brave Ranch. She has been recognized with a Meritorious Service Medal for her work with young survivors of sexual abuse. “I was really surprised,” said Meldrum. “We’ve been blessed to have lots of coverage on what we do. But I guess it’s kind of different when it comes from the government and you know that they’re watching and acknowledging the work that you do.” Meldrum said the Be Brave Ranch is a first-of-its-kind facility in the world, with 50 per cent of the kids that attend from Alberta and the other half from across Canada. The facility helps reduce PTSD in abused children by 40 to 50 per cent, she said. Advertisement
